CASEIDs are not developed for above mentioned files. Moreover Common identifiers are hard to compile before merging data files.

Research questions "How much C-Sections are conducted at Public and PVT facilities" In this regards we need to have indepedent variable of fertility, Residence, Regions, Education, Wealth Status, Single/Multiple Births before, ANC Visits, Timing of decision to conduct C-section.

Dependent Variable is C-Sections Conducted at Public and Pvt facility, Respectively.

Kindly guide me how can have datafiles having most recent live births in the 3 years preceding the survey (It will be my final data file) ?

If you support me with SPSS syntaxt for it thn it will be highly supportive for us.

We need urgant support.
